Description

Download TBB 3.0rc1. In my case it was 32-bit linux English. Unpack it, run it.

You'll get the "connect" or "configure" dialog page.

Choose 'connect'. A new page will pop up, which is the "bootstrapping Tor status bar" page.

But the old 'connect or configure' page remains open too, and there's a "quit" option still visible. If I click it, it doesn't quit. Eventually my Tor bootstraps, and then both windows *do* vanish ("ok, I guess it did quit"), but then a Tor Browser appears.

Seems like the smarter thing to do for usability would be to vanish the 'connect or configure' page once they've picked one and it's no longer needed.

We can look into the possibility of closing or hiding the first window when the progress window is opened. It is a little tricky because we need to keep a modal window open at all times to prevent the browser from starting up all the way before the Tor connection has been established (Firefox was not designed with Tor Launcher in mind).

The progress window is a "child window" of the connect/configure window, but the appearance isn't ideal on all systems.

This problem was fixed when we implemented the new Tor Launcher UI with the integrated progress bar.
